In these uncertain times, athletes are somewhat like the rest of us. They’re stuck at home in self-isolation with no idea when they’ll be able to get back to work. However, unlike the rest of us, they can’t just lie on the couch and watch television all day. No, they need to stay in shape so they’re ready to get back into it when the outbreak ends.
However, most professional athletes are rich, so this is a lot bit easier for them. They often have home gyms and coaches sending them detailed fitness programs. Many of them even have home chefs who tailor their diets to their personal requirements. So we’re going to check in on 20 elite athletes and see how they’re staying in shape in the current climate.
20. Kendrick Nunn
Like many basketball players, the Miami Heat’s Nunn has invested in a bicycle to keep fit. Cardio is one of the quickest things to lose if you don’t keep on top of it. Having a workout bike at home is an easy way to make sure you run some miles and be ready to go when the season restarts.
Nunn is a Rookie of the Year contender and he’ll be desperate for the season to resume. He’s competing against Ja Morant, Zion Williamson and fellow Heat star Tyler Herro for the elusive honor. Only time will tell if he’s able to get his hands on the prize.
